About This Fantastic Biography:
.
*** FIRST PLACE WINNER of the Florida Writers Association 2014 Royal Palm Literary Award for Biography ***

Begotten With Love is a sometime turbulent, sometime rollicking story spanning 150 years of American history and five generations of an immigrant’s family. The stories on these pages are tales of courage, triumph, folly and forgiveness. You’ll laugh and cry as the author brings each generation to life and lets you live the experiences as the characters and plots unfold. As one reader put it, “It reads like fiction . . . but it’s not!”

Based on the author’s 30 years of research, the book brings to life each generation and lets the readers live the experiences as the characters and plots unfold.

“My family is a writer’s dream,” Glim said, “filled with remarkable characters but then every family has its share of dreamers and doers, cowards and cads, heroes and heroines. I hope after reading Begotten With Love you will love my family as much as I do . . . warts and all. More than that, I hope you will love your family even more!”

About The Author:
.
 Award Winning Author, Jo Ann V. Glim
.
Jo Ann V. Glim‘s professional career (as a disc jockey and copy-writer) began in the late 1960s in Chicago on the all jazz radio station WSDM-FM when she answered a help wanted ad in the Chicago Tribune which  boldly  stated: No experience necessary. The 24-year-old  (whose  personal  life  was  in shambles — a  six-year marriage on the rocks and no marketable job skills) laughingly thought, “For once, I qualify”!
.

.
That  was  the “glamorous” side of her career. One she is grateful to have enjoyed but she was also fascinated by the  inner   workings of business management and now, remarried and living in the suburbs, wanted to experience corporate life. Glim began as a file clerk with Kelly Services and throughout the years took advantage of every business class Kelly and local junior colleges offered.  Sixteen years later, Glim retired as an on-site manager at “Baxter Healthcare’s Human Resources (IV Systems) division” . . . still employed through Kelly Services.
.
The one constant in Glim’s life has been writing. As a forty-year veteran of freelance writing. with credits to her name for “Hallmark Cards” and one-liners for nationally known comedians . .  . And for the rest of Jo Ann’s fabulous life story, you just have to visit her Author Website at: www.BegottenTheBook.com  … You can even read a sample of her book while your there too!
.
I have known Jo Ann, my “Florida Girl” for a long while now, and I believe we met through Twitter & Facebook. But we do see each other a lot on Social Media. She has always engaged and interacted with me on both sites, and when she sent the direct message of her good news of winning this fabulous award, I told her I just had to “Spotlight” it for her!
Then, …. I got sick with an upper ling infection. So I’m sorry girl this took way to long to share your *Special Honor & Award*!! “But you know Jo Ann I always got your back dear”!! Now I do have her book added to my Goodreads “Want To Read” book list, and when I’m done, I’ll be doing a nice Blog Post Review her for you when I’m done reading!
.
See, that’s what it’s all about, authors helping and networking together to help all of us be Successful as authors & writers!
